    Speculation Thread

    I agree with the above. I am sure there is work going on behind the scenes and I'll just need to get to the fact that the first time I'll hear about a new signing is on the official site when they are introduced to the public - just a different way of conducting business. And I have no doubt we'll sign players I have never heard of before. I'd prefer that to being continually linked to some of the familiar names currently being banded about as available or talking to other clubs. In Stubbs we trust.

    Speculation Thread

    No rumours or speculation on new players on this thread for a while, not even fake ones. Stubbs keeping his cards close to his chest or just nothing doing ? Surely not all the new signings will come from England where apparently we need to wait for the WC to end, must be a few from clubs up here. Are we interested in Halkett and Rooney, and if so, are we talking to them ? And if not, why not ? Love to think we're working on some deals.

    Speculation Thread

    Agreed. And I take it all back. I’d never heard of Calum or seen him post or quoted on here before. Have since checked out his twitter account..... I’m pleased with the stadium sponsorship deal he was referring to. Am also happy with the appointment of DJ although accept that opinion may not be universally shared. In AS we trust.

    Where did you get the mug ? Love it, but haven't seen that on the club shop website, or anywhere else. You can always do with another St.Mirren mug.....

    A highly rated young striker sounds like a good fit for us. I'm sure AS is well aware of him, and others, at Everton, and will be working that angle. Just hope to see some movement soon.

    Be nice to see some movement on staff, players or backroom, before the end of the week. Pure impatience on my part, I do recognise that it's worth the wait to get the right people at the right price - I'm just desperate to see our squad assembled in time for them to gel before the start of the season.

    And Calum would be aware of this because ?

    New Manager Latest Odds

    Loving the posts in this thread tonight. Loving the outrageous suggestions that there may be Spanish and Dutch guys interested along with guys from either side of the OF. I hope it’s true - no such thing as bad publicity and all that. Go for Kluivert - How long would it take Reilly to decide where his future lay if he was our manager. Enough dreaming, going to be Caldwell or the guy from Coleraine.

    Wasn’t Tom Hendrie a teacher who managed a part time outfit before joining us ?

    Agree, I think that's exactly what he's doing. And why not ? Like a few others on here have said, I'm not sure if he'll be able to reproduce the early season goals in the PL and believe Mullen offers more all round to the team. Bit we do need a goals man....

    John Terry as player manager ? Obviously wouldn't be available to play against one half of OF. Only joking, honest.

    Speculation Thread

    The latest rumour is that there will be no rumours or idle speculation, however outrageous, about signing players until at least next week when various managers return from holidays. Prior to that all speculation will be confined to the vacant managers position. I am finding this so frustrating !
  13. Agree. And I’m sure the board have a replacement lined up if JR does leave. Anyone remember when we signed players last summer ? I remember thinking we got our business done much earlier than normal but not when that actually was.
  14. Maybe the improved contract specifies the compensation payable to the club if he leaves. And perhaps a deal to loan the manger back to us for a season !

    Speculation Thread

    Really frustrated at the lack of activity on this thread. Not even as much as a whisper on some days. I know many players contracts don't expire til the end of May, but surely there's some noise out there. The sooner the manager situation is sorted out the better.
